Brandon Jenningsâ€™ comments last monthÂ about possibly leaving Milwaukee for a bigger market predictably didnâ€™t sit well with the Bucksâ€™ front-office, and asÂ his name gets bandied aboutÂ in trade rumors, Jennings tells theÂ Journal SentinelÂ that itâ€™s not a good feeling: â€œJennings said he was taking a nap Monday afternoon at the team hotel in New York City when his phone started buzzing constantly. â€˜My phone was full with messages and everything,â€™ the 22-year-old Jennings said. â€˜Now weâ€™re in the hunt to make the playoffs; weâ€™re one game out and weâ€™ve been playing so well since the all-star break. Now that I hear my name being mentioned in possible shopping around and stuff like that, my mind is just all over the place right now.â€ [...] â€˜But with a trade, thereâ€™s nothing you can possibly do about it,â€™ Jennings said.
â€˜You wonâ€™t hear from the front office. Of course they wouldnâ€™t tell you. The main thing is Iâ€™m still able to do what I love and thatâ€™s play basketball, at the end of the day. I have no negative thing about it; but my mind is just wandering now. This is where I started my career. It can kind of shake up the team, the fact that weâ€™ve been rolling.â€™ Jennings is averaging 18.7 points, 5.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds and is the only Bucks player to appear in every game this season.â€
